Lemon Tree Cottage is located in the hamlet of Corcitos just 3 km from the pretty village of Querença with its beautiful XIV century church, bars, restaurant and mini-market. Only 15 minutes by car to the nearby town of Loulé with its popular Saturday market and is only 20 miles (25 minutes by car) from Faro International Airport.

The property is situated beside the 392 ha classified site of Fonte de Benémola, defined as an area of outstanding natural beauty. You can walk directly from the property out onto the track leading to the river valley with its rich diversity of flora and fauna. The Fonte de Benémola spring is one of the Algarve’s most important with its flow of up to 4 million litres per hour ensures that the river flows at 60% of capacity throughout the summer. You may lucky enough to see Kingfishers or hear the many Nightingales along the river valley.

We certainly love to listen to the Nightingales and the Golden Orioles sing during early summer. But we have  many other delightful songbirds that abound in the peaceful surroundings. Whatever the time of day, you can find a place to sit and relax in our beautiful 1.5 acre gardens.  Perhaps with a glass of cool white wine or beer under the shade of an olive or almond tree.

The Algarve has a wonderful year-round climate and makes an ideal holiday destination throughout the year. Blessed with more than 3000 hours of sunshine a year (the highest in Europe) temperatures here are consistently higher than can be expected elsewhere in Europe at the same time of year.

The summer months of June, July and August are the hottest of the year with very little rain. In spring and autumn temperatures of 23°C ~ 28°C are more like those of summer in England. In mid-winter an average daily temperature of 16°C ~ 20°C is the norm. It seldom rains in summer or winter but rain is usual in spring and autumn.

Contrary to popular belief, the roads in the hills around here are not dirt tracks but excellent quality, tarmac roads to the highest quality. Fully marked with white lines, street lights and safety barriers wherever required. Wide enough for two busses to pass one another.
